General Information

Epigenetics is a field that impinges on many biological processes since it encompasses fundamental mechanisms of gene regulation. In addition, this area is currently exploited for drug development, particularly against cancer, since epigenetics regulators are miss-regulated in this disease. The conference will bring together all these themes. It will provide a comprehensive backdrop to the basic principles behind Epigenetic and cross-reference to their relevance to disease. There will be sessions on Chromatin, RNA and DNA regulatory pathways and a separate session on recent developments in drug discovery from Pharma.

Key Sessions

  • Chromatin regulatory pathways
  • RNA modification pathways
  • DNA modification pathways
  • Drug discovery
